The Western Digital WD10JPVT Scorpio Blue 2.5" 1TB SATA Hard Drive is the new and small drive that offers a high-performance, low power consumption, and cool operation that is perfect for most laptops and portable devices. While 1TB is not the largest capacity on the market for a drive of the 2.5-inch design, most current 1TB or larger drives, including the previous 1TB WD Scorpio Blue, come in the 12.5mm thickness standard and therefore are not compatible with most existing laptops. This 1TB Western Digital WD10JPVT Scorpio Blue is the first 1TB internal 2.5-inch hard drive for laptops that has the same 9.5mm thickness as drives of smaller capacities.
The Western Digital WD10JPVT Scorpio Blue delivers best-in-class performance with power requirements comparable to much slower drives. In addition, you'll get the smallest (height 9.5mm) and quietest 2.5-inch drive on the market, and the one with ruggedness, reliability, and data-protection features that actively watch over valuable data. The Western Digital WD10JPVT has a standard 8 MB cache, spindle speed of 5400 RPM for fast performance and a low power consumption that yields longer battery life and increased overall reliability.
Utilising the most technologically advanced material available on the market, the Western Digital WD10JPVT Scorpio Blue is able to execute a minimum of 600,000 load/unload cycles without contamination, up to twice the performance of its competitors!

(Examples of the number of photos, songs, videos and any other files that can be stored on a hard drive are provided for illustrative purposes only. Your results will vary based on file size and format, settings, features, software and other factors.) One gigabyte (GB) = one billion bytes. One terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment.
Laptop Drives are the smaller form factor (2.5”) drives, typically found in laptops, Low-Profile PCs and some Consumer Electronic equipment.
SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) hard drives are quickly becoming the new standard in hard drive technology. Motherboard manufacturers now include SATA inputs on their boards. SATA hard drives result in less clutter and increased airflow in the computer system because SATA cables are 400 percent narrower than EIDE cables.
Some older computer system motherboards don't have SATA ports but a PCI SATA controller card can be installed to add support for SATA drives. If you don't know whether your computer has SATA ports on the motherboard, refer to your computer or motherboard documentation or contact the motherboard manufacturer.
